GlobVolcano: Call for Proposal is now open for competitive tender
2006-08-18
The Invitation To Tender (ITT) on the DUE, "GlobVolcano", Ref. AO5206 in the ESA Invitations to Tender, has been published today on EMITS with a closing date of 17 October 2006.
The European Space Agency (ESA) hereby invites all interested companies from DUE participating countries to submit a tender for the GlobVolcano procurement. If companies are not yet registered as an ESA bidder, they are invited to obtain access to EMITS by completing a questionnaire, which can be found at the indicated URL below, section Registration Request.

The GlobVolcano project objectives are the definition, development and validation of EO-based geo-information services for Volcano Observatories (VO) and Civil Protection Agencies (CP).
The geo-information services to be developed are related to different areas of responsibilities of the VOs/CPs, with emphasis on prevention and early warning, but addressing also crisis management and post crisis activities.

The GlobVolcano geo-information services are:

  • Deformation mapping by SAR (prevention & early warning);
  • Surface thermal anomalies (prevention & early warning);
  • Volcanic gas emissions (SO2,CO2) (prevention & early warning);
  • Optical/ IR characteristics of plumes and eruption clouds (early warning & crisis);
  • Damage mapping (post crisis).
The GlobVolcano project will include the following main tasks:
  1. Specify EO based services for volcano observatories based on documented user requirements;
  2. Integrate latest EO technologies with state of the art ground based observations;
  3. Implement and integrate the geo-information services at various VOs and CPs;
  4. Validation of the services.
To obtain a representative assessment of the potential and limitations of the GlobVolcano geo-information services, the project will cover 15+ volcanoes of different types from various geographical areas worldwide.
